          Abstract

          This paper describes a participatory study with children from a Nepalese village in the Himalayan Mountains. The aim of this work is to derive requirements for a mobile app that will allow children in developing rural communities (in countries such as Nepal) to share stories, without the use of English, with children in more developed urban communities (in counties such as the UK).The children, aged 9-11, were asked to draw their local environments as design inputs to a character-based interface for the mobile application. This paper describes how the study was conducted, gathers together the results and then reflects on both the usefulness of the drawn images for design and also the usefulness of the drawing-based design method. The work is novel in its context of place and use and the work draws useful findings for others seeking to do such work in faraway places.
